10th Canadian Field Artillery Brigade, Nominal Roll
This Nominal Roll identifies the Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and Men of the 10th Brigade Canadian Field Artillery. Details are provided in the notes that follow.

The Nominal Rolls of the Canadian Expeditionary Force are described by Library and Archives Canada as the "lists of soldiers on strength with the unit on a particular date. They were generally created in the course of a unit's formation in Canada, often in preparation for departure overseas. Five copies of nominal rolls (army form MFW 20) were to be prepared by the regimental adjutant. Two were submitted to the headquarters of the Military District in which the unit was raised (one of which was to be forwarded to the Department of Militia and Defence in Ottawa). Three were to accompany the unit overseas. The first page was to contain a list of officers, arranged in order of rank. Other ranks followed on succeeding pages, arranged in alphabetical order, showing full name, rank, and regimental number."
A number of additional documents pertaining to the 10th Canadian Field Artillery Brigade are on file at Library and Archives Canada, including their War Diary. The CEF Matrix Project 1918 ORBAT (Order of Battle) shows the 10th C.F.A. joined with the 3rd Canadian Division serving in France in July 1916 and served with them until Armistice in November 1918.
